Our Capital High School math team would like to thank our teacher and coach, Mr. Dennis Peterson, for his wonderful job teaching us for the past three years. We recently came in as co-national champions out of 938 total teams in the 2017/18 High School Mathematical Competition in Modeling. Our problem was to mathematically describe how we could create a light show using drones. Mr. Peterson has consistently taught us the practical applications of math, which is what allowed us to excel in this competition. In addition, he has always pushed us to take part in math-related competitions and events. Capital High School is very fortunate to have such an outstanding teacher. Thank you, Mr. Peterson!
